Online Instruction for K-12 Special Education: A Review of the Empirical Literature
Vasquez, Eleazar, III; Straub, Carrie
Journal of Special Education Technology, v27 n3 p31-40 2012
Online environments increasingly are becoming a part of our schools. While online education holds tremendous promise--offering viable and attractive options for advancing student skills, increasing access, and potentially lowering the cost of educational services--there is little research on the efficacy of online instruction for students with disabilities. A comprehensive review of the literature was conducted to determine if the existing literature can provide a research base for delivering evidence-based practices mediated through synchronous or asynchronous online technology for students with disabilities.
